LETTER FROM
MRS. COOK
Entirely Recovered From Illness,
And Now Growing Stronger
Each Day.
Cavo Springs, Ga.?"I Bleep better
than ever," writes Mrs. Kato Cook
trom this place, "and get stronger
fevery day. Before I tried Cardui, the
woman's tonic, I was very sick, and
the doctor's medicine did me no good.
I can never speak too highly of your
medicine."
Sleeplessness and nervousness,
from which many women suffer, often
make living unendurable.
If you aro ailing, no need to stay
Ro. Most of the ailments peculiar to
women aro preventable, curable.
Others have obtained relief by taking
Cardul. Why not you?
tiaruul is a popular medicine with
women. It is popular because it has
been found to banish nervousness, relieve
pain, bring roses back to pal?
checks, and strength to weak bodies.
Cartful acts specifically on the cause
oT most female ills, and thus It is a
medi< ine especially useful in women's
aliments, in the treatment of which it
has a record of over GO years of success.
At least it can ?ln you no harm, to
Five Cardul a fair trial.

110 Trapplst monastery of Oeth- \
Isemane, twelve miles from i
Iiearddtown, Ky.. is especially |
Interesting now because of the J
exoulslon of the religious or !
tiers from Portugal and their lnnnlnent
expulsion froui Spain, which will
drive many of them to seek refuge In
this country. The expulsion of the religious
orders from France a few j
years ago sent many monks and nuns t
n? /Miirnca and Kngland and resulted !
in thu establishment of monastoriea :
and convents in various places. The |
members of the Trappist order are
pledged to silence for tlio remainder 1
f)f tli<?ir days. It is the Order of the ;
Silent FJrotln rhood.
Tin; abbey of (ieth.semane is a self
sustaining institution. Everything its i
monks require is raised or made on |

is twelve miles away, making a visit
a rather difficult task. Years ago,
when James Lane Allen wrote "The
white Cowl," his descriptions of the
abbey brought many visitors there
from all over the United States, but
today the monastery Is almost forgott<
n by the outside world. When the
members of the order die they are
laid to rest In the little cemetery outside
the monastery walls. There the
original founders of the abbey are
buried.
Tin* abbey owes Its direct origin to
the abbey of La Mellleraye, in the
department of Loire-Inferieure, France.
The abbot of the latter institution
made an arrangement with tin- French
government back in the early forties J
to lay the foundation for a monastery
of their order on property situated on
the Island of Martinique, Riven to
A Trapplst Farmer.

lovnfall it the monarchy the original
I>!. !! was abandoned in favor of a colony

row gorgo which forms Its entrance,

lii" middle ages the monastery was
captured nnd pillaged many tlmcB, and
It was not until the middle of the
scveileenth century that tho order
wat put on i firm hauls and spread to
'other lands. I'ntil Napoleon became
emperor of France their order prospered.

Oh, I lovo to hear the thrum nnd tho
rumble of tho drum
When the (Ifes nre shrilly sin^ln^ and the
mnrchliiK soldiers come.
For I think of how tho beat has been
timing trudging feet
ThrouKh tho years that nre forRotton,
over path and road and street.
All the legions of the past, armies small
and armies vast.
Trod the meiisiiri' r?f Hrnmlinni
the dice of war were cast.
And the rattle and the roll wake ail echo
in my soul.
Wake a war sour front the nges when
men fared to slory'a goal.
As a word is cauRht and flunp on ttio
breezes from the toiiKUP,
So the shouting sonj? of warcfare l?y tlie
thrumming drum is bimik.
And tlie shouts of days of yoro that once
swept tho plain and shore
Are re-echoed and re-echoed in the vibrant
roll and roar.
And the hlood within my veins races on
until it pains,
While the ancient sons of battle In Its
cadence ebbs and wanes.
And I know now why It was men could
perish Tor a cnuso.
Why they cli?>>] niton the altar for their
precepts and their laws.
IIo, a thousand thousand feet have gone
marchlnK to Its heat;
That has rolled across tho valleys In the
cold and In tho heat;
Men have Kone from home and hearth,
from their Ki'lef uiul from their
mirth.
When the drum sent forth Its summons
for the country of their birth.
And I cannot tell you why, but a tear Is
In my eye
When I see tho flashing beauty of Old
Glory In tho sky.
As I hear the throb and tliruin and tho
rumble of tho drum
When tho flfos are singing shrilly and
the innrehlnK soldiers eotne.
As It Will Be.
"I know it sounds unkind," remarks
tho man with the uncertain eye, "But

"Well," observes tin* mnn with the
false shirt front, "when that day arrives

tho days when the original old inhabitants
told about those deer being
shot."

"I simply will not quarrel with any
of my beaux until after Christmas,"
counties the Hist damsel.
"Well, that idea is exploded," assorts
the second. "Of course, if yon
don't quarrel with them, they will
send the usual remembrance on Christmas,
but don't you sen, if you do quarrel,
then they'll send twice as beautiful
a gift as a peace offering?"
Almost.
